Genki Sushi is closed in Lihue. There's a major refitting going on. It will probably take a couple more months making it unlikely that it will reopen before November of 2015. Other locations are up and running - and just as good as ever.

Service was very slow, but you don't come here for the service. You come here for good, cheap sushi. Nothing fancy or exceptional, but it does the job and the conveyor belt is always fun.

Located in the center aisle of a shopping mall, with large plate glass windows to the mall, you neither expect nor experience much in the way of ambiance. Seating is provided via a dozen or so booths adjacent to a moving conveyor belt of prepared...More
